The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted plenty of discussion regarding the future of in-person workplaces. However, the pandemic has not stopped the continuation of a sizable Morris County development that will primarily consist of office space.


Work is rapidly progressing on the first phase of the M Station at Morristown complex, which is being built along Morris Street between Morristown’s New Jersey Transit train station and the Morristown Green. The site was previously home to a large parking lot and a strip mall known as the Midtown Shopping Center that contained multiple local and national retailers.

When completed, M Station at Morristown is slated to include two mixed-use buildings, ground-floor retail space, penthouse terraces, a “landscaped pedestrian promenade,” drop-off areas for ride-share vehicles, and outdoor plazas, the project website states.

Deloitte, the accounting firm based in London, will reportedly close its operations in nearby Parsippany-Troy Hills and occupy 110,000 square feet of this complex instead.

M Station at Morristown is set to receive a 30-year tax abatement, according to the Morristown Green news website.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held back in November 2020. In the time since, there has been plenty of construction done on the development’s parking garage and six-story eastern building. Similar work has not yet begun on the seven-story western building and pedestrian plaza, which is expected to be built where a parking lot and 7-Eleven location can currently be found.

Plans to move the 7-Eleven to the corner of Pine Street were recently approved by the Morristown Planning Board, according to Morristown Patch.

Morris County includes quite a mix of development types, ranging from mixed-use developments like Sofi at Morristown Station and downtown office complexes like Headquarters Plaza in Morristown to office parks and suburban sprawl near where Deloitte currently has operations in Parsippany-Troy Hills.
